From Lupicia

A delicious tea with a flavour easily compared to that of a famous Taiwanese desert. The intense sweetness of pineapple is fused with an Oolong base. Ideal at the end of a meal, or as an afternoon treat.

Both pineapple and coconut are flavours that can be very difficult for me to appreciate (see how brave I’ve been this time around – melon, lychee, pineapple and coconut; I’m taking on all my taste nemeses) and in the bag, this is all piña colada, with an emphasis on the coconut. No bland, artificial coconut, though, but one that takes me straight back to a coconut farm I visited in Ben Tre.

Steeped, the scent mellows considerably, but there’s still an emphasis on the coconut – which is surprising, as I thought this would be far more about the pineapple. In the sip, though, the fruit comes through and balances the coconut very nicely. I can’t help thinking, though, how perfect this would be with a little almond or vanilla thrown in for added complexity.

As the tea cools, the flavours come out more and more, but the balance remains excellent – again, surprising, as I thought the pineapple would take over completely.

This one might just grow on me, too, which could get expensive in the long run – all I want to do now is google island vacation spots.

Sipdown of the day…
I decided I wanted to try this as a cold brew last night and I’m having it today with my lunch. Pineapple seems like a difficult flavor to “get right” in tea but I do enjoy this whenever I have it. Probably will be a restock someday, but I might wait until I have finished off some of the other oolongs I have first or tried a few new ones.

Iced 8 min or more

This is my first review on anything at all, especially tea, so here goes!~

I had been sitting with my grandmother, talking about virtue and morals (and boys) while the TV was on the news channel. The room was dim and I had just finished taking a bath when grandma asked me if I wanted to try a new Oolong tea. I agreed eagerly and she had me first smell the tea leaves.

They smelled very sweet already and the smell of pineapple was very strong as well.

The Oolong was very bitter yet very floral on the first brew so I and my grandma brewed it again, sour grimaces on our faces all the while. With the second brewing, in grandma’s Gaiwan, the Oolong was so much sweeter and creamier than before on the first taste and smell, without adding any sweetener. The color of the tea looked a smooth and buttery gold and reminded me of sunlight on still waters of a river or lake. Even without sweetener, the tea was very very floral with just a hint of pineapple, just enough to make me imagine myself in a tropical paradise sitting under palm trees and humid sunlight, and the greenest ferns and grass at my feet.

With a spoon-tip-full of sweetener, the Oolong came to life.

The floral flavors burst out onto my tongue, I savored the creaminess as it flooded my mouth, and after I swallowed, the taste became very buttery and silky, leaving a aftertaste of sweet pineapple and sugary butter.

I drank the remainder of the tea in my cup, straining to restrain myself from guzzling it down all at once, and was very sad when it was finally finished. I enjoyed this Oolong by Lupicia very much, it only being my third Oolong ever; it is delicious, as long as it is brewed more than once for a more concentrated flavor. :)

Tea #7 from Another Traveling Tea Box

I wish there were more of this in the box, because this is very good.

It’s a light, floral oolong with some deliciously juicy pineappleness. As the tea cools, the floral note is very easily noted as orchid (yum!), and I pick up a little bit of coconut.

The best piece here is the pineapple. It’s sweet then subtle-y tangy at the end of each sip. And honestly tastes juicy. Just like biting into pineapple.

I’m going to put the wet leaves in my thermos and see if I can get a cold brew out of them too. (So much for it being too cold for iced tea, I guess).

Pineapple tea was something that struck me a strange, so I wasn’t sure I’d like this, but it was a pleasant surprise.

I’m going to try to start getting through some of this drawer full of samples that I have! This is the first one that I saw today when I opened my tea drawer. It’s a pretty tea, with little rolls of green tea and small chunks of pineapple. The dry leaves smell lightly tropical, with sweet pineapple and coconut. The tea itself smells like fresh pineapple and coconut. The flavor is very mellow. I can detect a smooth buttery coconut flavor with just a little hint of slightly sweet pineapple at the end. I added a little sweetener thinking it would bring out more of the sweet pineapple, but it kind of just smoothed out both the pineapple and coconut flavors so that they flow together. The tropical flavor becomes a little sweeter as the tea cools. I’m glad that this one has the coconut in it as well, as I think that it would be a little too plain with just the pineapple flavor. I think this tea would be a good cup in the afternoon, as it is very light and calming. Thank you, Mercuryhime, for this sample!

-Dry blend has rolled green tea leaves with small chunks of dried pineapple.
-Dry leaves smell lightly of sweet pineapple and coconut. Tea liquor aroma is of fresh pineapple and coconut.
-Tea liquor is a clear very pale yellow color.
-Buttery smooth coconut flavor with a slightly sweet pineapple finish.
-Best with sweetener.
-Very good tea. A smooth and tropical cup with hints of pineapple and coconut. Best as an afternoon tea.

Huuuuuuge thanks to Sil who sent this my way! I’ve been drinking this practically nonstop for the last two days. A glorious 3.5L later, it’s about damn time I get around to writing up this tasting note.

To sum this tea up: sweet, juicy pineapple and buttery oolong with a flavor that will outlast your ability to keep drinking.

I thoroughly enjoyed four steeps of this tea (adding 1 min each time). The first tasted of sweet pineapple juice with a somewhat light oolong flavor in the background. With successive steeps the pineapple calmed down a bit but was always detectible in the flavor. The oolong really came to life in the second or third steep as its flavor came to the forefront. This is an excellent tea that I could see becoming a staple in my cupboard.

this one and the one from butiki are so very tasty!

The pineapple oolong is definitely on my wish list for my next Butiki order. I also have the one from David’s, so I’ll have to see how that one compares. Thanks agin!

Prep: 3 tsp. leaf, 500 ml. water, at below parameters.

I always like Lupicia teas when I’m drinking them, but for some reason they aren’t my first choice when I look in my cupboard. It’s a shame, really, because they are SO GOOD.

This is from my Lucky bag (like, from 2+ months ago) and I’m just now getting around to trying it. I was super wary about this blend because pineapple and coconut just aren’t flavors I like combined. I know I’m in the minority where this is concerned, but there it is. However, the buttery oolong base in this makes it phenomenal. Pineapple and oolong show up more in the taste at first, with coconut finishing off the sip. Their brewing parameters surprised me (boiling water for an oolong?!) but I’m glad I trusted them because despite the temp, this was a very smooth brew.

I am drinking this hot and without sugar, but I think iced (and probably a little sweetener) will be the way I have the rest of it. The boyfriend gave it a sip and concurred, which is good because he’s going to have to help me drink it. :)

Super tasty – now the real test will be how it holds up iced!

Tea #24 from Another Traveling Tea Box

I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this one, while I am a huge fan of oolong, I’m not really a fan of pineapple or flavored oolongs. It ended up being quite delicious and I expect it would make a really nice iced tea in the summer, something I’ll have to keep in mind. The pineapple blends beautifully with the floral flavors of the oolong and it’s subtle, something I notice at the end of each sip. Just enough for me to know it’s there, but not enough to overwhelm the oolong.

This tea also resteeps well, I’m just starting on my third steep although the leaves have been sitting all day since I had to run errands.

So, I have been EXTREMELY impressed with all of Lupicia’s fruit-flavored blends I’ve tasted so far. This one is no exception! The loose leaf smells like a fresh pineapple, none of that dried or candied stuff. Fresh pineapple being one of my favorite snacks in all the world, you can imagine how happy that made me. It’s so much better than eating candy. :3

Anyway, this tea is immensely satisfying as a dessert tea. I’m actually missing the oolong flavor just a little, so I’m going to re-steep this to see if maybe the oolong comes out a little more (it being a Taiwanese oolong really intrigues me, even though it’s not a very dark one). This tea gets two thumbs way up!

I forgot to add what happened when we re-steeped it! The oolong flavor did come out more—in fact, we had to switch the leaves to a bigger infuser for the third steep, because they had simply outgrown the one I’d originally put them in! They expanded SO MUCH. And I was also impressed by the fact that even in that third infusion, I could STILL taste some of the pineapple flavor! I’ve never seen a fruit flavored tea do that before—at least, not one that seems to have no fruit pieces in it. This might have to become a staple…
